  • Records for Ruth ElizabethTerry, wife of Rama Terry, match earlier census records of Ruth Elizabeth Hopkins, daughtrer of Thomas H and Mabel J Hopkins in Utah.  Some genealoiges report on her, but I have not found any that cite a marriage record, though one or two give the date.

    The record was found only on 22 May 2017.  Her nmae in the record is Ruth H Bost, her prevcious married name.

    Rama W Terry
    Age 56
    Birth Date abt 1905
    Spouse Ruth H Bost, age 43
    Both residents of Juneau, Alaska
    Marriage 24 Apr 1961 Tulsa, Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA
    Ceremony by Thomas Fleming Shaw, Minister of the Gospel, Christian Church
    Witnesses Dan Ernie Hanes of Juneau, Alaska and Joe A Turley of Tulsa, Oklahoma
    Registered Tulsa County Marriage Book #165, page 207

    Note that the genealogy reports that the couple married in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  This seems odd, since they were so far out west.  What connection did they have that would have taken them to Oklahoma to marry?  The marriage record was found 22 May 2017 and gives us her name as Ruth H Bost.
